Product photography: tips for using a light tent for irresistible images
How to choose the right light tent for your product photography
Follow our tips to getting a light tent that has the features you need for your product photography
01 White dome
We used the Lastolite ePhotomaker; this is a kit and is sold in two sizes. It has a built-in reflector, so only needs one lamp.
02 Get in a cube
A pop-up cube is the most popular type of light tent, with white translucent panels on four sides for a range of lighting options.

03 Big as you like
Lightboxes come in all sizes, as these Lastolite Cubelites show. Get one that’s at least twice the size of your biggest subject.
04 Coloured scoops
Some tents come with a selection of seamless scoop backgrounds, so you don’t have to shoot everything against white.
05 Product table
A pro solution for product shots is to use a still life table, made out of an S-shaped scoop of translucent Plexiglas.
